Explore teaching ideas that are new to you, new to a few, new to many, or new to all

Innovation is one of five key synergistic and often interdependent domains–along with diversity, technology, evidence-based teaching, and assessment & evaluation–that guide the resources, services, and mission of the CTI.

To us, innovation is relative and expansive. It encompasses anything that instructors want to newly integrate into their classroom to enhance student learning. This might include introducing new educational technologies, experimenting with active learning strategies, introducing inclusive course design principles, and more.
